Thousands of people across NSW will have easier access to NSW Government transactions with the launch today of Mobile Service Centres.
The initiative will save people time and money. Four custom fitted Service NSW buses will be introduced to the Service NSW physical network this year with each bus spending about 46 weeks a year on the road.
It means people in locations such as Yetman, Boggabilla and Hillston where there is no physical Service NSW presence will be more conveniently serviced now and in the future.
Most if not all people in NSW including children, families, seniors, pensioners and business people will interact regularly with Service NSW.
Since 2013, Service NSW has become a one stop shop for vital services such as getting a birth certificate, a Seniors Card, driver licence and vehicle registration.
The Mobile Service Centres will perform every major Service NSW transaction including Driver Knowledge Tests as well as Cost of Living appointments.
They will roll through towns with advanced notice so the community knows when to expect a visit and what documentation is required to perform their transaction.
Each Mobile Service Centre will be cashless, with payment options including cheque, EFTPOS or credit card.
The buses will attend community events such as agricultural field days and festivals throughout the state to complement existing services.
The first two Mobile Service Centres will be on the road from this month, with another two to follow this year.
The timetables will be updated on a regular basis and are subject to change.
